The sunshine award

14 Jun

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy… So goes a song I faintly remember from childhood. Savindi nominated me for this award, and I feel I could sing this to her!

Rules For The Sunshine Award 

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself.
  • Nominate other fabulous bloggers.
  • Link your nominees to this post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

What Is Your Favourite Childhood Memory? Waking up on Saturday morning to the smell of chips and sausages that my mum would prepare for our breakfast. A perfect recipe for a full day’s garden work: weeding, planting, manuring, name it. We grew potatoes, carrots, maize, beans, kale and everything that could sprout!

What is a real fear you have? FAILURE!!!

How would you describe yourself? Discreetly funny, with a few very good friends that last for a lifetime. Definitely not a party girl, rather the book-worm type (mainly novels) Haha!!

What Countries have you lived in? I have lived in Kenya most of my life, but also in Uganda for one year and Italy for three years.

What is your style? comfortable with a streak of ethnic. I think that cotton is the best thing that happened to humanity, after the wheel and sliced bread.

What is your favorite breakfast food? Anything goes, as long as there are no eggs!

What are some of your hobbies? reading, reading, and more reading!!

If you could tell people anything, what would be the most important thing to say? Follow your heart, but listen to your head too.

What is one of your passions? Passion as in something I dream of: winning the Caine Prize for African writing some day

What is the one truth you have learned? No situation, however wretched it seems, but has some sort of comfort attending to it.

Now to the nominations: (many of the people I would like to nominate for this award have it already, but let’s see…)
